West Fork Tool can perform custom machining and complete small production run CNC projects. Our larger machine can handle stock up to 7' x 12' x 2' in size.
We are located in Tumwater, WA., just down the street from South Puget Sound Community College.

**UPDATE**
We now also have 3D printing services available! I can custom design items for you, or if you find a design and have the file(s), I can print them for you.

I have plenty of black filament and am ordering more colors. I am currently printing in PLA, but can also print jobs with other filaments on request.

If you have any questions or need a project completed, please feel free to reach out.


**UPDATE 3/1/23** We are upgrading the printer hot end to support additional filaments and capabilities. Let me know if you need something printed, or if you need some CNC machine work done.


Thanks!

Bump for 3D printing update!

Don't forget, I am now building Gear Grid seat back and custom panels! Accept any MOLLE compatible gear and can be used with quick fist clamps to hold additional gear (firearms, flashlights, fire extinguishers, tools,etc.

I have a really stupid question... how are you with small-scale projects? (Both in parts quantity and size, and fine detail.) For example, I have a buddy who designs stereolithography/3d-print miniatures and models for wargaming where one of his large three-decker sailing ships without masts in 1/1000 scale is about the size of an adult finger with cannon barrels somewhere between a staple and paperclip, and while this is probably the kind of thing better suited to a home setup like a Creality or M3D system I have neither space nor skill to setup my own so I'm looking for someone who can plug-and-print my flashdrive of files, then either secure my files to be exclusive for my future use or purge them. (They're Non-Redistributable, license allows me to send them to a print shop but the printer has to either delete them afterward or make a note that they are not to be used for anyone else since it's a sub-assignment under my Personal Use Only license.)

At this point this is only a research project, budget and more Immediate Action projects like building the mag stash mean it's back-burnered.

Original post says PLA, so it's FDM printing. Which isn't great for small details.

I am running a Creality, and currently printing in PLA, but I can print in other materials as well.

For something like this, something I have not tried, best I can say is I can get some better suited filament and try printing you one. No worries on purging, or you can simply provide the file(s) on a MicroSD card and I can print and return the card with the model.

If you are interested, shoot me a PM and we can go from there.

Thank you!

Jim

Jim, I'll follow up later once I've got some of the six tons of crap on my To-Do List cleared. Right now all of my "projects and construction" bandwidth is going to "Beat The Ban Buzzer"...

Thanks!
